St. Paul, Minn. — Psalm 42 speaks of the desire for peace and rest in the midst of sorrow and want. The image of a deer seeking a cool drink from a running stream is the starting point for poetic language that itself calls for musical treatment. Two composers' settings of Psalm 42 are featured in this week's Regional Spotlight. From just this last weekend the Augsburg Masterworks Chorale and Orchestra with soloist Katherine Skovira led by Peter Hendrickson perform Sicut Cervus by Palestrina and also Mendelssohn's powerful setting of "As the Deer Cries Out for Running Streams."
